Leonato is Hero’s father while Beatrice has no parents. As a result of her not having any parents she has more freedom. Beatrice is best described as cynical and sharp while Hero is very quiet, respectful and gentle. The ways the two react and don’t react to things creates a very huge difference between them and it reveals a lot about who they are. Shakespeare constant use of dramatic irony and contrasting plots show just how easy it is for Hero and Beatrice to be compared on contrasted.

While Jack takes the rule as a dictator and Ralph wants a democracy, Jack’s ruling worked out better for him in the long run. Ralph did not have any power as the book progressed because the boys were not scared of him. He did not take initiative and reprimand them so they did not have any motivation to do what they were told. Jack did not take this approach. He was very hard on the boys which they may not have liked, but it worked in the long run.
Family heritage of calamities was passed to Ethan. There is no evident aggression from his parents, yet there is no sign of respect family values, he was deprived from developing effective life expectations. Although Jamaica Kincaid’s “Girl”, Junot Diaz’s “Fiesta 1980”, and Edith Wharton’s Ethan Frome contain different experiences from childhood to adulthood, the texts from these authors relate to dismissive relationships between parents who intent to teach discipline, respect for their traditions and demands, as well as adequate moral compromises due to failure on the methods parents use with their children. Human relationships do not guarantee ideal function, even if it is between a parent and their child. The presence of fear when opposition is presented, turns any situation relating respect
In modern day culture most people aren 't exposed to murder, crime, or lies like in The Maltese Falcon. Most people live a safe lifestyle without too much danger, but in The Maltese Falcon every chapter brings a new crisis for the characters to deal with. The Maltese Falcon does not have the relatable quality that a vintage novel should have and as a result of that, I do not think it should be labeled a

The fact that no character is really mentioned long enough to have any description or individuality distances the reader from the story. Again, this works very well in Jackson’s favor as the reader cannot grasp onto any character and root for them or empathize with them. So when it comes to the ending, the reader is shocked by the pain that the ‘winner’ feels and the pure evil that seems to resonate from every other villager, supporting Jackson’s idea of the unnecessary violence in the world. Jackson also uses third person objective point of view to effectively convey her view of the world. The entire story is told not through the minds of the characters but as if the narrator is just recounting the details of the event.
